ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the story of how the album {dial tone} all began, it strange but you need to know how very funny it is...
I spent a lot of time writing these songs. Initially I wanted this to be an album of love letters, something I wrote about other people's experiences. I would gather letters and try to understand how exactly other people were seeing the world and then write a song about it. I started by reading letter after letter and asking people to see their letters. I then began reading handwritten letters I had found online until one day a funny thing happened... I was on an airplane going to California and this odd man wrote me a love letter while we were flying and gave it to me when we got the the airport. I found it coincidental that the very thing I was looking for was handed to me by a stranger and wrapped in toilet paper (NOT KIDDING)! I saved the letter because I thought this was such and hilarious experience. I mean this very strange guy sat behind me on a two hour flight writing this, then he proceeded to follow me. He followed me from the plane to the bathroom to the baggage claim, to the customer service line, then outside to the bus stop. This is where he walked up to me- didn't say a word- and handed me this. Obviously he was little off, people don't really go around doing this sort of thing. But I had to admit there was something I couldn't help but love! and that's the fact that someone was strange enough to do this! So I began to re-think the album. Why was I reading love letters from other people when I had been given plenty of my own. So I began writing songs, personal songs about love. One of my favorite songs on the album is called plane crash, and it's partly born out of this experience on the plane. Yet, obviously not about this strange airport man. But it's about how sometimes Love is better from the ground. "Dial Tone" is tied into this idea with the line "put on your parachute" foreshadowing the theme of the rest of the album, as it ends with "Plane Crash" and a song called "Blind"
Every song is personal, and every story is hard to tell, unless of course it's sung. I hope you buy the album and that you enjoy it!

Very nice....great production!
I'm a music producer and listen to very few artists that make the cut...Andrea's textured vocals are very Feist-like and her compositions are original yet structured for indie radio and anyone who loves a great mixture of alternative folk with pop sensibility. This is a must buy...I love it!
